GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning on Wednesday cancelled occupation certificates (OC) of around 100 houses in DLF areas, Sushant Lok and Palam Vihar for violation of building norms and illegal commercial use. It has also asked the tehsildar of Gurgaon not to register such properties “without proper verification of records”.
When an OC is cancelled, water, power and sewage connections stand withdrawn from the building.
A DTCP team cancelled the OCs of 100 houses in DLF, Sushant Lok and Palam Vihar after it found that their owners violated sanctioned plans. The move followed a survey of the houses that got OCs since January this year under the self-certification scheme. Now, the total number of properties that lost their OCs in the past six months is 165. District town planner (planning) RS Batth told TOI the department has shared with the tehsildar a list of properties that no longer possess OCs. “We have requested him to update the same in his records so that the registration of these properties is not done,” he said.
“The move is likely to check the menace as the property owners will not be able to sell the same without registration,” he added.
Earlier in May, the planning wing of DTCP had cancelled occupation certificates of 38 residential buildings on Golf Course Road and in Sushant Lok 1 after a team of officials found that illegal commercial activities were going on in those properties.
Officials of DTCP said these residential buildings were being used to run commercial activities, causing loss to the state exchequer to the tune of several crores every year. As per rules, commercial activities are not allowed in residential areas, be it licensed colonies that come under DTCP or plots in HSVP sectors.
